Default Versus... *requests*

If you have a problem,
if no one else can help,
and if you can find them,
maybe you can ask... well, pretty much everyone

Powerful Characters
Special Characters
Deathstar Units
Magical Items
Devastating Combinations
Spells of all types

If you just can't think of the tactics to counter something then post them here and I'll make a "Versus... whatever" thread to join the collection that we already have. Gradually we will build up a whole range of tactical threads covering any and all aspects that people find difficult to deal with.

We have a lot of old 7th edition "Versus..." threads, but not many for 8th edition. By all means search for the older ones, but if you want to create new discussions please ask for a new thread for 8th.

So far for 8th ed:
Versus... Teclis
Versus... Cannons/Stone Throwers/Warmachines
Versus... Slaan
Versus... Skaven Slave Spam
Versus... White Lions
Versus... TK chariots
Versus... Hordes
Versus... Monsters
Versus... Gunlines
Versus... Ogre Gunlines

For 7th ed:
Versus... Daemons of Chaos
Versus... Phoenix Guard
Versus... Dragons (and other Monstrous Flying Creatures)
Versus... Archaon
Versus... Kholek Suneater
Versus... Steam Tanks
Versus... Dwarves
Versus... Vampire Counts
Versus... Gun Line Armies
Versus... Warriors of Chaos
Versus... Ogre Kingdoms
Versus... Grimgor Ironhide
Versus... Dryads

Afraid I'm not going to start a thread for power scrolls of any sort... there aren't any 'tactics' you can use against this combo since turn 1 it'll be on you and letting rip.
A few things you can do in army build though- a few banners give some/full protection (HE banner of the world dragon, ogre rune maw), you can try to use magic resistance but it won't help against the worst spells. Only other things you can try is to play with the opponents magic pool, stealing dice before they can be used to smash through magic with the power scroll...
If you can't do any of that there is nothing to do but sigh and take it- there is a good reason that most tournaments ban the power scroll.

Fair enough. Although I've thought of another- White Lions. S6 ASF is a bitch...I mean, I have counters to them, but they rely too heavily on magic... which we all know has a tendency to fail when we need it most.

I've found that some people have trouble with Phoenix Guard, though I've taken them on enough times to know how to take care of the pointy-eared bastards. Also, if anyone wants to know how to kill a Hydra, I know some of the ways that do and don't work. If you'd like to, I could post up a thread for each of these.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.
